a letter from the 




"Do not remove the ancient landmark which 

your fathers have set. " 

Proverbs 22:28 



This past year of celebrating our 
75th anniversary has constantly 
reminded me of Bryan's faith- 
fulness in heeding the scriptur- 
al admonition to not remove 
the ancient landmarks. Bryan 
College continues to send a 
clear message of God's truth 
through all of our teaching 
whether in the classroom, on the ath- 
letic field, in the residence hall, or in 
the community. With much to cele- 
brate, this year has been filled with 
manifestations of our mission of 
educating students as servants of 
Christ to make a difference in their 
world. 

Publication 
of 75th Anniversary Bible 

We began our celebration in the 
fall of 2004 with the publication of 
our 75th Anniversary Bible. What bet- 
ter foundation could any college lay 



than the inspired and inerrant Word 
of God giving us the landmarks to 
shape our lives? This is a special col- 
lector's New American Standard — 
Open Bible Edition with the history 
of Bryan College in text and photos 
(www.bryan.edu/75thbible) . 



"This year has been filled 
with manifestations of our 



» 



mission... 



Community Service Day 

Celebrating Martin Luther King's 
birthday in January was of great sig- 
nificance for all of us as the entire 
campus took a day to be involved in 
dozens of community projects. Jesus 
set the standard when He said in 
Matthew 20:28 that He did not come 
to be served, but to serve. 

Launching of the Bryan Center 

Last spring heralded the inaugural 
symposium of the Bryan Center for 
Critical Thought and Practice. The 
Bryan Center brings to campus lead- 



ing national scholars who enable our 
students to think deeply and biblically 
regarding our response to critical cul- 
tural issues. The Center sponsors two 
to four such symposia each year — 
each featuring several visiting scholars 
and one of our own faculty. 

The first symposium focused on 
natural law as it informs the 
Declaration of Independence 
and the Constitution and fea- 
tured Dr. Douglas Kmiec, pro- 
fessor and leading legal consult- 
ant for the White House. The 
Bryan Center provides an 
unparalleled educational opportunity 
for study in the liberal arts from a 
biblical worldview 

Heritage Week 

During Heritage Week, two Bryan 
alumni, Ron, '65, and Lois, '64, 
Zartman exhibited their display of 
first edition books written by John 
Newton, the author of Amazing Grace. 
The college also celebrated the return 
of intercollegiate baseball to Bryan 
with a ceremony naming the baseball 
field in honor of Mark and Rosa

factor of our baseball facilities and 
program. 



Fall 2005 

Opening our school year 
this fall, Michael Cromartie, 
vice president for the Ethics 
and Public Policy Center in 
Washington, D.C., reminded 
one of our largest freshman 
classes and returning students 
of "Doing our Duty While 
Living in Exile." The College enrolled 
a record 775 students here in Dayton 
and on our Chattanooga campuses. 



Rev. Dean Ropp, '81, challenged us 
during Spiritual Life Conference to 
remember that our life is but a mist, 
but the life we live and the work we 
do have eternal consequences. 



"Jesus set the standard when 

He said in Matthew 20:28 

that he did not come to be 

served, but to serve." 



of a Biblical Worldview featuring 
Nancy Pearcey, author of Total Truths 
and in October, another symposium 
on "The Law and What It Means to 
be Human" with featured speaker 
Gerard Bradley from the 
University of Notre Dame 
Law School.

In September the Bryan Center 
sponsored a symposium on the topic

New residence hall will be~ 
ready for students in Augus 



The first new residence hall since Woodlee-Ewing, 
which was built in the mid-1980s, should be ready 
for occupancy next August. 
A rapid-fire series of decisions, including using a unique con- 
struction technique should make this time-sensitive project 
possible, college officials said. 

Bryan President Dr. Stephen D. Livesay said the college 
had one of the largest incoming classes in its history this fall, 
and interest in the school remains high. "We have only a 
dozen beds open on campus, so it is imperative that we pro- 
vide rooms for the students we anticipate next year," he said. 
"Our admissions staff believes the interest prospective stu- 
dents are showing means we easily should equal or exceed 
the size of this year's incoming class next fall, so we must be 
prepared for those planning to come." 

Vice President for Operations Tim Hostetler said the 
120-bed residence hall will feature two wings on each of four 
floors, with 12-20 students per wing. 

As a result of two meetings with students and personnel 
in the Office of Student Life, the building is being designed 
to have community restrooms on each floor, as do Long and 
Huston residence halls, Mr. Hostetler said. Each room will be 



equipped with a sink and mirror and modular furniture. 

To complete the project in such a short time the building 
will be built with a pre-cast concrete and brick shell, with a 
more traditional construction inside. "The building shell will 
be constructed off-site in a manufacturing plant, and brought 
here on trailers," Mr. Hostetler said. "Then it will be assem- 
bled much like an erector set. The time to erect the shell of 
the building, once the footers are in, is estimated to be 10 
days to two weeks. After that, the building is 'in the dry' and 
we can work in any kind of weather, even 24 hours a day if 
necessary." 

The new building will be located between Arnold resi- 
dence hall and Summers Gymnasium, facing Woodlee-Ewing 
residence hall. 

With construction of the building the college will lose 
about 70 parking spaces, so a new parking lot has been built 
behind the gym. The first phase of that project provides 
about 85 spaces, with another 100 to 120 to be added later. 

The contractor for the $4 million project is Dillard

Troyer Group of Mishawaka, Ind. 

In a ceremony Nov. 30, the college broke ground for the 



12 Christ above all 




project, and actual construction began 
during the break between semesters. 

Trustee Betty Ruth Seera spoke on 
behalf of the board when Chairman T. 
Ramon Perdue was unable to attend. 
Mrs. Seera said, "It is good to give 
thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to 
the name of our Most High God. . . to 
declare His loving kindness in the 
morning and His faithfulness by night. 

"It is both my privilege and my 
pleasure on behalf of the Board of 
Trustees of Bryan College to welcome 
you here today, and to publicly 
acknowledge God's hand of blessing 
that has brought us to this place. 

"All over the earth God has set His 
people to be light, bringing the light of 
the gospel of Jesus Christ into this dark 
world. Here on this beautiful hill in 
Dayton, Tenn., our president, our facul- 
ty and staff, and the board of trustees 



are very focused and purposeful in our 
vision to educate our students to 
become servants of Christ to make a 
difference 

"Only eternity will tell 

how far the light of the 

Gospel has reached 

through what we do 

here, but each of us 

today can be very 

grateful and humbled 

to be part of it." 

-Betty Ruth Seera 



in today's 
world. 

"This 
event 
today 
speaks to 
the 

future; 
not just 
the future 
of Bryan 
College — 
that 



vision 

would be too small. Not just the future 
of Rhea County, though the college's 
influence has brought abundant bless- 
ing to this community. But it speaks to 



the future of the kingdom of God in 
the whole world. Only eternity will tell 
how far the light of the Gospel has 
reached through 
what we do here, but 
each of us today can 
be very grateful and 
humbled to be part

"I thank you, 
students, faculty, 
staff, and guests, for 
taking time apart to 
celebrate with us! 
And thank you, Dr. 
Livesay, for the 
strong leadership 
you have brought to 
the college, for your vision for our 
future, and for your commitment to our 
Lord Jesus Christ and His Kingdom."

East Region Team were Manoel Silva;

Correction: 

Cross country as an intercollegiate 
sport at Bryan College dates back to 
the early 1950s, not the late 1960s, as 
an article in the Fall Bryan Life implied. 

The 1951 Commoner, Bryan's year- 
book, shows a cross country team was 
in place in the 1950-51 school year. 

We appreciate Dr. Everett Boyce, 
'56, writing to call attention to the earli- 
er edition of the cross country team, 
and apologize for omitting reference to 
the athletes who blazed the trail for 
today's Bryan Lions. 



Bryan to offer MBA program 



Bryan College will offer a Master of Business 
Administration degree beginning in August 2006, 
following an adult studies model, unique to the 
Chattanooga area, college officials have announced. 

Approval of the MBA program by the Commission on 
Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and 
Schools in December culminated more than a year of plan- 
ning toward this goal, President Dr. 
Stephen D Livesay said. 

"This is an exciting step for Bryan 
College, particularly as we celebrate our 
75th anniversary this year," Dr. Livesay 
said. "An MBA program, developed on 
Bryan's biblical worldview foundations, 
should produce graduates who are quali- 
fied not only in the business discipline 
but who understand the importance of 
doing business in an ethical manner. The 
outstanding record of our undergraduate 
students should be an indication that this 
new graduate program has the 
potential to similarly be a significant 
tool in preparing men and women to 
be leaders who will make a difference 
in their field." 

A team under the direction of 
Academic Vice President Dr. Cal 
White and Dr. Robert Andrews, dean 
of graduate and professional studies, 
prepared the proposal for SACS, a 
proposal which included marketing 
surveys that indicate a need for and 
interest in such a program. 

"This is a new area for which there is a need, and for 
which we feel we can bring something unique with our 
Christian worldview emphasis," Dr. White said. "This is the 
only faith-based MBA in the Chattanooga area not tied to a 
denomination. It will be a non-traditional schedule in that 




"This is a new area for 

which there is a need, 

and for which we feel 

we can bring 

something unique 

with our Christian 

worldview emphasis." 

-Dr. Cal White 



classes will meet all day every other Saturday, and on the 
weekends when classes do not meet there will be Internet 
sessions." 

Dr. Andrews explained that other MBA programs in the 
area are offered at night with a traditional schedule of class 
offerings. "Ours is a hybrid course, with the meetings every 
other week and on-line assignments on the other weekends. 
Also, a cohort group of students will 
proceed through classes together 
throughout the three semesters." 

In addition to classes taught by 
Bryan and adjunct professors, Saturday 
sessions will feature lunch meetings with 
area business leaders, giving practical 
insights into current topics. 

The college plans to enroll between 
1 5 and 20 students per group, with the 
first group to begin studies in August 
2006. The second would follow in the 
spring of 2007, with two groups starting 
each year. 

Dr. Livesay said the MBA pro- 
gram is another step toward the col- 
lege's goal of increasing enrollment. 

"Our plan calls for traditional 
enrollment to grow to 1,200 on our 
Dayton campus, and we have made 
significant strides in that direction 
already," Dr. Livesay said. "We also 
have a goal of 600 non-traditional 
students, and the growth of our 
Aspire degree completion program, 
with nearly 200 students makes us believe this, too, is realis- 
tic. But we also realize new programs must be added to reach 
that goal, and the MBA is another step in that direction." 

Dr. Ray Smith has been named director of the MBA 
program.

Marilyn Laszlow: 



Same story, 
new audience 

Sharing lessons learned as a Bible 
translator and speaker is so excit- 
ing for Marilyn Laszlo, '59, that 
retirement isn't even in the picture. 

Tales of her life among the Sepik 
Iwam people in Papua New Guinea 
may entertain audiences at colleges and 
summer camps, but those stories are 
only vehicles to get across three mes- 
sages central to her ministry in the 
United States: "First, be sure you're in 
the center of God's will. Wherever you 
are is your mission field," she said. 
"Second, follow your dreams. Be true 
to how God has made you. Third, fol- 
low your dreams and you won't go 
wrong. Take steps based on your pas- 
sions; that's part of the way you trust 
Jesus." 

During her visit to Bryan in 
September, Marilyn said she has contin- 
ued to speak regularly for Wycliffe 
Bible Translators and the Laszlo 
Mission League because "I love the 
story. I believe in missions work." As 
she speaks around the country, she has 
become convinced that "this generation 
is a very special generation. I've heard 
many people say that. There is no gen- 
eration like these young people in my 
lifetime." 

As she told her story, a sense of 
urgency came through. The need for 
missionaries remains because there still 
are people who have not heard the 
Gospel. 

Stories of her experiences illustrate 




the point that God will change lives 
when people hear His Word. But, 
there's a reminder, too, that missionary 
work often involves more than just 
translating or teaching the Bible. 

While Marilyn worked as a Bible 
translator, she also taught the Sepik 
Iwam people to read and write, to do 
basic math, and to understand basic 
sanitation and health matters. "They 
wanted to know why; they thought they 
didn't need math," she recalls. "I 
showed them how they were being 
exploited by the crocodile hunters; that 
convinced them!" 

While a student at Bryan, the mar- 
tyrdom of five missionaries in South 
America "put God's stamp on my deci- 
sion" for mission service. She wasn't 
alone. "No event in history can match 
that event which propelled people into 
missions," she said. "That just rocked 
this university." 



It was not until 1965 that she was 
able to join Wycliffe and begin formal 
preparations for translation work, as 
she worked to pay off college loans. 
She said her Bryan experience "pre- 
pared me very well. There was a lot of 
discipline here. It was good for me." 

Although she had planned to go to 
South America, "God had another plan 
- the South Pacific." Her 24 years in 
Papua New Guinea convinced her that 
people are ready to hear the Gospel. 
"There is no question in my mind that 
every person in the world is prepared 
for that Book. Jesus said to go into all 
the world and preach the Gospel. Just 
go! The fields are ripe unto harvest. 
That's why it works; they are ripe." 

That conviction hasn't changed, 
even though her mission field has. 
Today, she is sharing the excitement of 
following God's leading and encourag- 
ing young people to do the same. 



16 Christ above all 



Dear Alumni, 



"The moon is opposing Jupiter. 

Don't get involved, its their problem. " 

- Jim Critfield 

What if we took that stance on 
everything? What if we said to our- 
selves, "I see a problem, but I'm not 
going to get involved because it is their 
problem, not mine." What a selfish 
point of view; people would no longer 
be concerned with the welfare of oth- 
ers. 

I thought about this because of an 
email I received from an alumna who 
was concerned about Bryan College. 
The alumna asked some great questions 
that expressed concern and frustration 
about the "heart" of Bryan College, 
wishing that the school hadn't changed 
since she attended. 

I could have replied with all the 
right answers, giving this alumna the 
words she wanted to hear. I could have 
given her lengthy answers about why 
Bryan College isn't straying from its 
mission, how we are working hard to 
remain faithful to the godly heritage 
that has set Bryan apart from other 
schools. But I had to ask myself, "Is 
that the best idea? Would that really 
answer her questions?" 

At times, I wonder the same things 
this alumna was wondering. I look 
around and I realize the school has 
changed... and the students are... dif- 
ferent. Bryan College HAS changed 
since you and I were here, but on the 
other hand, it hasn't changed. The faces 



are different and the campus 
looks different. But the stu- 
dents' hearts are the same and 
the college is deeply committed 
to academic excellence stem- 
ming from a biblical worldview. 

So the new question we 
must ask ourselves is, "What 
are we supposed to do if we 
see something we don't like?" I 
implore you not to think as Jim 
Critfield has thought. 

We all really like the school 
still. We have earned our 
degrees here, and Bryan has significant- 
ly changed our lives. We have every 
right to be concerned about our alma 
mater. 

You still have an opportunity to 
influence Bryan College. You still have 
an opportunity to see that the college 
isn't going off to perdition in a hand 
basket. 

You can pray for the school or a 
student that you know. You can write 
Dr. Livesay or your professor a letter. 
You can serve on the alumni national 
board, or even the alumni executive 
board to express your thoughts and act 
upon them. Your concern may drive 
you to join the homecoming committee 
or volunteer in another area that inter- 
ests you. 

Your influence on Bryan College 
doesn't have to end once you receive 
your diploma. Our alma mater is too 
important for our concerned alumni 
not to be involved.

"I can think of many reasons to give 
to Bryan College. We are all in the 
debt of colleges and universities we 
attended. We received more than we 
paid for thanks to past professors, 
alumni, parents, and friends of the 
institutions we attended. And now it is 
our chance to repay this debt, per- 
haps with enough interest to help 
those who follow our paths to higher 
education at Bryan College."

Former First Lady Alice Mercer dies Jan. 4. 



Alice Mercer, 89, First 
Lady of Bryan College dur- 
ing the 30-year administra- 
tion of her husband, Dr. 
Theodore C. Mercer, died 
Jan. 4, after a brief illness. 
She was born May 25, 
1916, in Omaja, Cuba, 
daughter of missionary par- 
ents, the Rev. Augustus and 
Ora McLean Moore. 

She was professor and chair of the English department at 
Bob Jones College before she and Dr. Mercer moved to 
Dayton in 1956, when he became Bryan's fourth president. 
She was founding president of the Bryan Women's Auxiliary, 
and served as hostess for countless college events. 




Bryan President Dr. Stephen D. Livesay recalled Mrs. 
Mercer's comments during the college's dedication of the 
administration building in memory of Dr. Mercer when "she 
gave a wonderful testimony of her faith in Jesus Christ and 
the ministry of 30 years which she and Ted were blessed to 
have together at Bryan." 

He pointed out that during those years "Bryan achieved 
accreditation and made significant strides as a Christian liber- 
al arts college. It has been such as treat for Corinne and me 
to have spent some time getting to know and appreciate 
Alice. Even in her later years, she retained that wonderful gift 
of hospitality and graciousness for which she was known 
during her active years as First Lady of Bryan." 

She is survived by her three sons, Ted Mercer, Jr., '69; Dr. 
John Mercer, '74; and David Mercer, '76, and his wife, Gwen.
